This is an amazing memorial that we visited at night. It is designed well and is simple yet complicated like the times it represents.

Peaceful memorial park for those executed during the Salem Witch Trials. Easy to find and Salem is only a short commuter train journey from Boston. Lots to see and discover and nice eateries and witchy shops.
